What would you expect from two Brits and a Canuck.

It's hard to stay away from restoring a pretty face.

The steps I took were:

1. Added a multiply layer to build up depth, and used a mask and painting to control the degree of the multiply (did not use multiply on the eyes for example)
2. Used cloning to clean-up marks and spots throughout
3. Added a gaussian blur with a mask to selectively paint (soften) her skin and hair
4. Added a gradient for the background
5. Used a screen layer and adjusted opacity to add brightness to her face
6. Added an Unsharp mask to selectively sharpen her features

Great job Alan! I can't believe the amount of detail you pulled out of the hair. On my monitor the pic looks like it has a lot of noise. Did yours have this before posting. Maybe due to compression or sharpening, not sure though. I just brushed it with a 9% Blur brush and seemed to get rid of the problem, at least on my screen. Gotta try your method to pull detail out of the hair. All I could do is make it go black.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks Dave:

On the computer and monitor I was working on the noise did not show up. Now on my main computer/monitor I see what you were talking about. Thanks for softening it out, you did a great job.
